Thanks for all of your help on fixing the virus. Another question is how do I stop pages like http://www.abbeyblog.me/ from popping up on me?

Could you disable all addons in firefox please and see if the redirects persist

Do you have an addon called translator?

1. I do not have an addon called translator and I disable the 4 add ons that were in there.  I will let you know if pop ups continue.
2. Since I fixed the virus with your help(thanks), the cursor still jumps around while typing, not as much as much as before, but it still is doing it and it is very annoying. What can I do about that?

OK not got a laptop so not to sure how that works, but it does not sound like a malware problem I am afraid

Apart from that how is the computer behaving

OK, but this did not happen before the virus that we just removed. Now it happens, like I said not as frequently, but 15% of the time.
